Discipleship/Christian Living

Discipleship: A Vital Aspect of Christian Living
Discipleship: A Vital Aspect of Christian Living
by Hollis L. Green

Discipleship is based on discipline. Discipline is a system of rules affecting conduct or action and implies instruction and correction that improves, strengthens, molds, and perfects character. No summary does justice to the wealth of meaning in the teaching of Jesus; however, the simple truths were a basic message to mankind; love God, follow Christ, and enjoy His blessings!

Education

Transformational Leadership in Education
Transformational Leadership in Education: 2nd Edition
by Hollis L. Green

The transformational aspect of education is a strengths-based approach that acknowledges the background and capacity of the staff, the teacher and the learner. The curriculum becomes a vehicle to move the learner in a positive direction based on prior knowledge and maturity. This book provides a structure to nurture relationships between the system oversight, the principal, the teachers, the students, and the parents in a four-step model known as form/storm/norm/perform. This path to positive change is needed to adopt, deploy and ultimately bring about constructive change in the teaching/learning process.

Evangelism and Faith-based Development

Tear Down These Walls
Tear Down These Walls:
Beyond Freeze Frame Thinking and Name Brand Religion

by Hollis L. Green

One religion will never bring world peace or feed the children or care for the sick and dying. One group cannot eliminate poverty, violence, drugs, human trafficking or complete global spiritual change. A priority agenda must be to make people moral citizens of the world before they can become mystical citizens of heaven.

Synergetic cooperation is not to suggest a least common denominator religion or that Judaism, Islam or Christianity should lose their culture or compromise their sacred reality. Culture and tradition are social glue that holds religions together. Yet, compromise (a ?together-promise? agreement) is a necessary part of a common agenda for progress.

Where organized groups choose not to function, personal action can make a difference and break down some of the barriers to an action agenda that could strengthen the monotheistic message. Remember, the goal for a global outreach is not domination or control, but emancipation from poverty and violence, and liberty to choose a personal and eternal destiny at the hands of Providence. For this to happen, the walls to personal faith and action must be removed.

Titanic Lessons
Titanic Lessons
by Hollis L. Green

This book is the third in a series of Church Growth books by Dr. Green and deals with the super-church in America. The failed structures and adventures of the past may be instructive for the present and predictive for the future. Church growth follows natural laws and the relationship formula [R = n x (n-1) = ?] holds the key to managing growth. When growth challenges the ability to serve the needs of all the people -- growth becomes a liability. The things Protestants complained about Catholicism are being replicated in super-sized churches today!

Why Christianity Fails In America
Why Christianity Fails In America
by Hollis L. Green

The restoration of a positive Protestant spirit that produces a personal commitment to the basic tenets of the Christian Faith and a spirit of cooperation are required to make Christianity viable. In addition to the problems of the name brand Christianity and freeze frame theology, One Lord, One Faith and One Baptism have become 300-plus divisions with hostile leaders, competing agendas, and opposing methodologies. Leaders must take the initiative to bring renewal and restoration to local congregations and make evangelism and missions central to the local programming.

Why Churches Die
Why Churches Die
by Hollis L. Green

While churches sicken and die, while two billion have not yet heard effectively the name of Jesus Christ, whole denominations spend almost all their resources on things other than disciplining men and women. By way of contrast to all of this, Dr. Hollis L. Green recognizes the grown crisis and addresses this book directly to it. He knows the American church well. Wasting no time on superficial considerations and easy diagnoses, he identifies thirty-five reasons "Why Churches Die," and proposes remedial action for each. Every saint with even the slightest taste for the cause of Christ on earth will profit from the reading of this positive volume.

Designing Valid Research
Why Wait Till Sunday?
by Hollis L. Green

This book is a therapy for the local congregation to treat the root of the problem that has produced failure in evangelism. Too many Christians are only spectators; involvement of the people is the cure most churches need. The concept of Why Wait Till Sunday? calls for a cross section of people from the church to sit together in action groups to look at every important phase of the church?s ministry. With the Bible in one hand and their church records in the other, they face the reality of where their congregation really stands. Guided by the Spirit, corrections are made, innovative plans are born, and creative ideas are fitted exactly to the church?s need and combined to produce a realistic plan of action for that congregation.

Leadership and Management

Sympathetic Leadership Cybernetics
Sympathetic Leadership Cybernetics
by Hollis L. Green

Leadership requires a predisposition to behave in a manner appropriate for the mission of the organization. Past definitions may not be sufficiently grounded to inform management and leadership in the non-profit sector. Management and leadership functions as practiced in global corporations may not be appropriate for nonprofits, educational institutions, churches, NGO's, or faith-based groups.

Research Design and Methodology

Designing Valid Research
Designing Valid Research
by Hollis L. Green

Research is not complicated; it is sophisticated. A research project initiated prematurely without proper understanding of the problem and a workable plan can become an accident just waiting to happen. Information must be gathered in a controlled manner and analyzed properly to reach a valid conclusion.

This text is both an introduction and a handbook for social scientific research. Those who already have IT skills and are Internet savvy can solve problems that perplex family, work, community, established religion, or society at large by using simple keys of social research. For those who use it in a formal research degree program, an initial study of the text early in the program is recommended, then the "big picture" can be kept in focus as the candidate progresses.

Spiritual Warfare

Fighting the Amalekites
Fighting the Amalekites * Second Edition
by Hollis L. Green

It is time to behave what we believe to preserve the useful function of Christianity in society and its ongoing influence. ?One must lay aside every weight and sin that so easily overwhelms?.

Believers must submit to a spirit baptism of fire to engage in spiritual warfare. Organized religion will never prevail over the basic evil that plagues the world. Spiritual warfare is normally an offensive waged by individual believers. It is guerrilla warfare behind the lines with individuals fighting as lone snipers zeroing in on their current evil practices that become besetting sins. These personal battles are not limited to the young, the struggle is a life-style offensive.

Where organized groups choose not to function, personal action is required to make a real difference and break down the barriers to spiritual progress. There are no surrogate warriors, each individual must fight their own personal battles in order to grow in grace and spiritual knowledge. Surely, there are processes and practices that groups may perform that can assist individuals to combat evil forces; however, each person must fight their own spiritual battles.

Study and Writing Skills

Interpreting an Author?s Words: Refine Study and Writing Skills
Interpreting an Author?s Words: Refine Study and Writing Skills
by Hollis L. Green

When words or thoughts are translated from one language and a particular culture to another the meaning changes. These changes often go unnoticed and individuals apply a current definition to the words. In fact the meaning of words is in people. This could be the reason English/European students read authors rather than subjects. Knowing the orientation of the author and the background, philosophy, and purpose of the composition increases the understanding of the written document. So rooted in the earliest awareness of a need for knowledge and the continuing search by generations of thinkers, the systematic process of investigation emerged.
